My name is Mikael and I am a 39-year-old guy who has worked at Nim Distribution since the start in Malmö where I live. I am in my fourth year as a distributor and I still enjoy the work of distribution.
There are many benificial aspects of working during the night. You have a lot of free time during the day, which means that you can do a lot of private errands such as visiting the dentist or go shopping, for example. In the summer it is extra nice as you can take the opportunity to lay in the sun at the beach and go for a swim while others need to work indoors.
I enjoy my colleagues and my supervisors that I collaborate with during the nights. If you put your best foot forward and do a good job, there are often opportunities to work a little bit extra for those who want to.
I think that we at Nim are good to think about our climate impact at work and how we distribute our newspapers and packages in an environmentally friendly way.
The work as a distributor suits you who like a mobile and active job where you get the opportunity to be outdoors to a large extent.
My name is Ingrid and I am 50+ and I freelance as a graphic designer / web designer. Since I do not want to freelance full time, I combine it with working as a distributor at Nim. I have worked as a distributor since 2016 and it is one of the more fun jobs I have had.
I distribute in Vellinge municipality where I have worked with all our transport equipment over the years; trolley, bicycle and car.
I think the job is fantastic! You get to work independently and at the same time be able to be free during the day when it is, for example, sunny and nice outside. For me, who is a night owl, it does not always fit to work 8.00 to 17.00. Sometimes I prefer to go out and work at night and enjoy when everything is quiet and the air is at its best.
Since a few years back now, we at Nim have been working with digital distribution lists, which reduces paper consumption within the company.
Nim has also stopped plasticizing the newspaper bundles, which means that we consume less plastic, and it also saves time for us distributors. We now also sort plastic, cable ties, paper in separate containers, which probably also has a positive effect on the climate.
My name is Matar, I am 30 years old and originally from Sudan. Today, I live in Helsingborg and work as a distributor at Nim. I have worked here since 2018 in a few different areas, including Klippan, Helsingborg and Perstorp.
The good thing about working at night is that I can spend time with family or study during the day when I am not working.
I like the distribution profession as it feels like a helpful service for our society to distribute important information to homes that subscribe to newspapers.
We at Nim work environmentally consciously in many aspects, which I find inspiring! Among other things, we try to work with trolleys and electric bicycles where possible.
For the districts where we drive, you must undergo a driver test that shows that you can drive “eco friendly” and responsibly during the nights, which feels safe and good.
My name is Robert, I am 56 years old and originally from Malmö. Most of my professional life I have worked in warehousing and property management. Now I have soon worked for 8 years at Nim. Here I have previously worked in places like Malmö, Lund, Landskrona and Kävlinge, but in connection with the fact that I have moved up north, I now work in Ljungbyhed and Åstorp.
The advantages of working as a distributor are that you work quite independently and take care of yourself and that you get fresh air when you are out at night. Personally, I enjoy working at night as I can spend more time with my wife, children and grandchildren during the day.
I think the work suits you who like to be up at night, are orderly and feel confident in your own company. There is so much you get time to do during the days while working as a distributor at night!
We at Nim are environmentally conscious in our work, which feels rewarding and good. A clear example is that we work exemplary with sorting our waste of plastic and other materials during the nights when we unpack shipments of various kinds.
